Time Off

Well as  you all know I am in Maui, came here to do some readings , meditation teaching , but I get here and Lane Rocks Up , (Hurricane)

Well we survived it , that is a joke in it self .

So it has delayed everything for me.

But I been playing tourist here and sleeping a lot a real lot .

I must have been more tired than I imagine.

The last time that this happen to me was on my trip to Brazil in 1999.

For my first week there I slept every chance I got on the first week, than the second week everything started to move , I think that is waht is happening here .

I am so at peace here, is hard to explain.

To be here with Brad, Kevin,Corinne, Austin and Mr Warren is so good.

I think one of the best things is I am living the Local life  and that is what I like.

I cant believe that the drinking age is 21 here but you can  buy Alcohol everywhere,Chemist, Deli, Supermarket , Target.

The only thing I am missing is My Darts, and we are going to go for a Game soon in a few days.

I do Miss my Kids, Grandies,Mum,Pets, and some special people , but that is not bad as we have internet and we keep in contact that way so that is OK.

We have been doing a fair bit of Sight seeing and love that.

I could comfortable live here, but we do have commitments at home so, I be happy to visit when ever possible.

This week I am hoping to get out there and drum up some work.

I am not sure why I am here but so Glad that I am , and I am loving  Spending time with Brad, we needed that.

I hope you are doing exactly what you like to do Life is to short enjoy every moment and enjoy each person you meet, I am so Grateful to be here

Love and light

Maui and Hurricane Len

Well, here we are in Maui waiting for the arrival of Len the Hurricane.
I am sure you all heard about the calm before the Storm well that is what is happening
The sky is clear the birds are singing is beautiful and peaceful here.
We had our first warning came at 5.30am but I never heard it but I heard the 6am one
then I got up to see whats next.
Kevin was good and explained that it was first warnings but it will not be here for another 24hours so plenty of time to get ready.
so today is washing day getting things done just in case we lose power and water for a little while.
All running smooth
Now energetically is very different there seems to be like an inner peace around.
you can feel the ground and trees preparing, the trees have lifted their branches and that is a sign of rain the ants and running around collecting stuff preparing to hide.

I am calm and at peace with it all atm.
Certainly a new experience.

Love and light to all and special love and energy to Hawaii

Maui

Well, I made it to Maui Hawaii, it is a dream come true. I feel so Blessed to be here and forever grateful to Kevin and Corinne to invite Brad and I into their Homes
Energetically is such a different place
one of the biggest things that happen so far was in Honolulu Airport, about 10 minutes after we arrived, I was walking and felt great than this huge wave of Energy went right through me that that nearly tipped me over
I have traveled to many countries but that is the very first this happens to me.
I felt so good afterward but been trying to find out what it was so I asked Corinne, my friend, here this morning it has taken me 2 days of thinking before asking so she explained it to me.
Well, it has a name and is called, The Aloha Spirit

THE DEEPER MEANING OF ALOHA
by Curby Rule

For those who follow the path of Huna, or are fortunate enough to live in Hawai’i, it is common for us to use the word Aloha. We use it in greetings and farewells and in expressing love. But the word means even more, it is a way of life.

Besides these common meanings, the word Aloha holds within itself all one needs to know to interact rightfully in the natural world. These insights describe an attitude or way of life sometimes called “The Aloha Spirit” or “The Way of Aloha”.

The spirit of Aloha was an important lesson taught to the children of the past because it was about the world of which they were a part. One early teaching goes like this:

Aloha is being a part of all, and all being a part of me. When there is pain – it is my pain. When there is joy – it is also mine. I respect all that is as part of the Creator and part of me. I will not willfully harm anyone or anything. When food is needed I will take only my need and explain why it is being taken. The earth, the sky, the sea are mine to care for, to cherish and to protect. This is Hawaiian – this is Aloha!

As the child grew, the need for a fundamental code of ethics was taught. This code is found within a deeper layer of the meaning of the word Aloha. The code is derived from one of the acronymic meanings of Aloha.

A, ala, watchful, alertness
L, lokahi, working with unity
O, oia’i’o, truthful honesty
H, ha’aha’a, humility
A, ahonui, patient perseverance

The kahuna David Bray interprets this code as “Come forward, be in unity and harmony with your real self, God, and mankind. Be honest, truthful, patient, kind to all life forms, and humble.” He also stated that to the Hawaiian of old, Aloha meant “God in us.”

So far, within Aloha, we have found an explanation of our place in the world and a code of ethics to help us with our interactions in the world. The only thing we are missing is our “prime directive” while we are here, and that too can be found within the root words that make up Aloha.

alo, 1. sharing 2. in the present
oha, joyous affection, joy
ha, life energy, life, breath

Using Hawaiian language grammatical rules, we will translate this literally as “The joyful sharing of life energy in the present” or simply “Joyfully sharing life”.

But another layer of meaning can be found by factoring in the meanings of the roots words in aloha. “A” means “to burn” (figuratively, to sparkle) and it is also the name of mold found in souring foods. “Lo” is short for lo’o and loa’a which mean “to obtain or procure”. Together these indicate a transformation of energy (burning, sparkling, souring food), a product of an energy transformation (the mold), and an effort to get or obtain something. To me this sounds exactly like consciously manifesting or creating. This brings us to another translation of Aloha. “To consciously manifest life joyously in the present.” This is our prime directive.

Another translation of Aloha gives us the prime method of acquiring the Mana or spiritual influence, to use in manifesting. Breathing in the present moment. Awareness of your breath and correct normal breathing increases Mana and concentrated breathing increases mana even more.

I have always had a Big Cosmic Question about our existence, which is much easier to contemplate when broken down into smaller parts. The parts are Who, What, When, Where, and Why. Aloha has answered three of these, so far. Who, of course, is you and I. What, is the conscious creation of your Reality. When, is Now, the Present Moment, that place between past and future, which is the only place Reality exists. The answer to Where is Nature. The answer to Why is because we are here to cherish, protect and take care of this being we live upon the Earth.

I will explain.

The Hawaiians have no word for “nature” as in the sense of “being outside in nature”, but they do have a word for “world” or “Earth”. The word is honua and it also means “background” or “foundation”. The ancient Hawaiians did not view nature as being something separate from themselves because nature was their reality. So, Where is in Nature, the foundation of our physical world.

To find the answer to Why, we must look deeper.

If we look at the root words in honua we find the word ho’o-nu a. Some of the meanings of this word are: 1. to give generously and continuously; 2. to indulge as a child; and 3. surging, rising in swells, as the sea. So, a deeper meaning of honua is that the foundation of our physical reality, Nature, is continuously and generously giving to satisfy our needs and fulfill our wishes. But here is also a meaning of give and take. Just as the rising swells of the sea recede to gain renewed energy, Nature must also “recede” to renew Itself and give strength to the foundation of our reality. So, just as Nature gives of itself to us, we must give of ourselves back to Nature.

This truth can be found in one the tellings of the creation story about Papa and Wakea, the prime Earth Mother and Sky Father.

“From the first union of Papa and Wakea, comes a male child who is born prematurely. The child is dead at birth and is buried. From his body grows a shoot that Wakea names Haloa. This shoot becomes the first taro plant. The next male child to be born is also named Haloa in honor of his dead sibling and he becomes the prime ancestor of mankind”.

Let me explain the meanings behind this story.

Haloa means “long, waving stem”. This first taro plant represents a staple of the Polynesian diet, but also all plants that grow on this earth. Haloa, also means “long breath” and on an esoteric level, “everlasting cycle.” The life and death cycle of plants sustain all creatures, including us. Plants are a source of food and medicine, and they produce the oxygen we breathe. The first human is named Haloa in honor of these plants and to remind us to honor and tend the “everlasting cycle.” The gift of life passes from a human to the plants and then back to humanity.

This story tells us that the quality of our existence is ultimately tied to Nature. Nature’s continuous transformative cycles of water, air and growth are necessary for existence. Nature is an embodiment of the meaning of Aloha, and vice versa. It is no coincidence that Aloha and Haloa are re-spellings of each other. It is in Nature that we can discover the wonder of our existence here on Earth. Where else but in Nature is the spirit of Aloha easier to experience? Its beauty is awe-inspiring and energizing and draws you into the present moment, not unlike the feelings brought on by love and joy.

Nature is also where we can gain the wisdom to make responsible choices if we approach with Aloha in our heart. With an attitude of Aloha we can gain from the wisdom of the wind and the wisdom of the water and the wisdom of the soil and the wisdom of the trees and learn from the truths and revelations presented by the non-human community.

So, we’ve seen that Aloha is indeed a way of life, an attitude and it even contains guidelines to help us in our lives. It is most definitely a “word to the wise.”

In closing, I’d like to bring to mind another old saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words” and point out that Aloha is a perfect example that in the Hawaiian language sometimes the opposite of this saying is true as well. So, the next time you greet a friend with “Aloha,” hold its meanings close to your heart and think of the picture you’re painting. It is indeed a beautiful world.

I am so happy to be here I know there is a special reason that I am here
Love and Light everyone

Reconnecting with me , or trying to reconnect

Today My Husband did something special for me, but I feel that he has no Idea what it means to me. it brought me so much joy
Too many people would think not much about going bush but for me, it was very special.
We went out bush, yes I know it does not sound anything exciting but for me, it was what I needed, once I re-connected with the bush a felt so emotional and I had a tear of release.
it was not as long as I felt he really did not want to do it but we got a small load of wood and left.
I loved being out there, but I felt like I was intruding in his special place. so I need more time out the bush so I am going to have to find a way to do it on my own.

That is one of the many things that are different in this marriage, with my first hubby there was not his thing or my thing we did everything together for 30 years, going wooding it was the best, camping, the yard, the housework, cooking everything we were a team, so I am still learning that things are not the same and never will be. Brad was on his own for many years and is like he does not know how to be a team with me, but he is certainly a team with his friends.
To me, we are number 1, and everyone else is number 2, but to him, his mates are number 1 and I am number 2, that is how it feels. but he does not realize that he is doing it
I know that he loves me, but maybe I expect too much.
I certainly don’t want anyone else in my life as a woman I have the men that I want when he is there.
Is hard as I know that I am not an easy person to live with, I sometimes forget to ask his opinion as well so I need to learn how to be a team player too.

All I am saying is, take the time to reconnect with your self, acknowledge what is not right and try and work with it, no one is perfect.
I do Love Brad but I am still learning to build our lives together. all I can do is keep working with it and hope he feels the same, never take your partner for granted, treat them the way you would like to be treated, I am sure we got a long life so there will always be ups and down, but as long as we talk about it without judgement we will be ok.
